Huge savings to be made for all schools
SchoolAlerts.ie specializes in reducing your school's reliance on SMS text messaging. We link your parents to well-known smartphone apps such as Viber, Messenger or Telegram. Any parent that links up gets your messages for FREE. Sure, a small number may not own a smartphone and we fall back to SMS in this case, but the cost for these SMS is less that what you are currently spending. Take a look at this image from a SchoolAlerts.ie account, where a message was recently issued to 321 parents:
The total cost to send the school message to all 321 parents was just 88 cent! That's because the school has almost all their parents linked up to a smartphone app through SchoolAlerts.ie. Only 19 parents have yet to link up and these are the only messages that a school needs to pay for.
Lets compare this with an SMS Texting Provider
Depending on the SMS provider, a text message costs in an around 5 cent per message. With 321 parents, this works out as follows:
- SMS Provider = 321 * €0.05 + VAT= €19.74
- SchoolAlerts.ie cost = 19 SMS Subcribers * €0.038 + VAT = €0.88
- SchoolAlerts.ie app cost = 302 recipients go free!
- TOTAL SAVING FOR ONE ALERT TO PARENTS: €18.86
